Rich peanut butter cream sandwiched between two layers of milk chocolate- Buckeye Bark! Make this quick version of the classic peanut butter buckeye balls for a crowd!
It’s that time of year again! There’s a chill in the air. Crowds of people are gathering. Families are divided. You know what I’m talking about… COLLEGE FOOTBALL!
Spending more of my life here in Ohio we root for the Buckeyes of course! And there is no shortage of creative buckeye recipes out there. While I like a classic buckeye ball candy I certainly don’t mind taking a shortcut and making this Buckeye Bark. Perfect flavor in half the time! And this is perfect for the holidays, as I’m sure most all Ohio families enjoy buckeyes at Christmastime.
These little Buckeye Bark bites (recipe below) are perfect for gift giving around the holidays or for setting out while you watch the Buckeyes WIN BIG! Of course you could take it a little further and use them as cupcake toppers or on these delicious Peanut Butter Buckeye Cheesecakes I shared in partnership with the Ohio Poultry Association.
We have been a peanut-free home for nearly 5 years now due to an allergy in our family, so sadly I had to prepare these somewhere else and didn’t even get to take any home. Do me a favor and eat a piece for me if you make them! Deal?
